Today as my web-site for my book is launched, I sit here actually with tears in my eyes. They seem to be tears of joy and are quite surprising. Why didn’t they come the day I held my book in my hands and actually knew that I had finally written a book? Funny how we react to things that we create isn’t it?
I have been saying for a long time that the dreams of today are the blueprints for tomorrow. It came to me during a meditation years ago when I was pondering about life and just knew that it was “right.” On some level I knew beyond a shadow of a doubt that we create our lives. And I do not say this lightly as I do realise just how hard that is to live by, to understand and to take responsibility for.
It is easy to say that we have created all our happy stuff, but equally it is easier to blame someone else for creating all the unhappy stuff.
So are you asking yourself “Do you mean I have created all this heartache? Have I created all this crap in my life?” Well, sorry, but yes. Finally after going through all my own garbage for years of heartaches, abandonments, rejections, despair, suicidal thoughts, challenges by the truckloads, and other things – I have come to the conclusion that, yes, we do actually have a hand in what we bring into our lives. By our fears, by our thoughts, by our patterns, by our expectations, and by the unconscious injunctions we have given ourselves from when we were born (and maybe even before).
Recently, I had another challenge, but instead of fighting it, I just said to myself “Well, if I have created this, then I have also created a solution so I shall just wait for it to come.” I didn’t worry, fret, fear or get anxious. I just waited. And guess what, the solution rolled in gently in a surprising and miraculous way. It has made my life so much easier when I just let go of my need to fight it and not want it. Saying “yes” is a good way to begin the process.
Have I lost you? Okay, getting back to the original theme about dreams being our blueprints I have one thing to say that makes me absolutely sure about this. The very fact that I have written a book and have been dreaming about doing it since I was 5 years old tells me it is so. It took a while – but guess what? I have realised as I remember my dreams, my prayers and my thoughts, that I always get exactly what I ask for. Maybe not how I thought it might come, or maybe not when I wanted it. But it does come in one shape or another……. And has helped me to see the gift and blessing in every challenge that I have created….. Enjoy your journey Dear Ones.
